Ben Fordham farewelled his drive show listeners on Friday and will take a week off before replacing Alan Jones from 1 June.
After nine and a half years on the drive show, Fordham thanked a long list of people who have made his journey through radio so far possible.
“I just want to say a few thank yous before I say goodbye, because a lot of people have helped me in the nine and a half years I have been doing this shift, and a lot of people are helping me make the transition to breakfast.”
Ben thanked the bosses who backed him over the years, and the important people in his life, including his family. “My wife Jodie, I couldn’t do it without you.”
But most importantly, he thanked the listeners.
“Thank you for giving me a go, thanks for supporting me, thank you for everything… thank you, thank you.”
He played some of the highlights of his program over the years on his last show.
Mark Levy will replace Ben Fordham on 2GB’s drive show.
